I’d heard something like this in the movie Fight Club. The idea that we are afraid of our ability for greatness. I share this with you in hopes that it may improve your world. Looking at the ways I’ve sabotaged my own ability for greatness has enlightened me in many ways, now that I focus on it. Ask yourself: What ways do I sabotage or reduce my abilities to be good or great and why am I doing that. Stop punishing yourself for the past. Let it go. Forgive yourself and others. Be great and lift others up with you.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? …Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory…that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” -Marianne Williamson
